Secrets of the Paper Garden: Paper Flower Wreath [WORKSHOP]

Secrets of the Paper Garden Date: Sunday, May 3 from 1-4pm
Instructor: Debbie Smith Mezzetta
Workshop Fee: $35 members / $45 non-members
Plus Supplies Fee: $15
Class size: 6-12 participants

Back by popular demand is multi-media artist Debbie Smith Mezzetta, who will teach students to "spring" into May with delightful paper flower sculpting workshops—just in time for Mother's Day, summer nuptials, and other occasions!

Participants will learn how to create a classic paper flower wreath for the wall or a delicate wreath floral crown (perfect for weddings!) utilizing luxurious European crepe and other fine papers. These strikingly beautiful wreaths are pollen-free, with blooms that will never wilt and don't require watering.

As with the "Spring Bouquet" workshop, students will learn how to assemble petals, centers, buds, stamen, calyx, leaves and stems to fool Mother Nature!

No experience necessary. Register in advance. If you have questions, please contact the instructor Debbie Smith Mezzetta at
